today one of the most reliable lines in romney's campaign speeches was that under president obama the economy -- the unemployment, that is, had not gone below 8%. now today he's saying that even though there's been this slight decline, this economy is nowhere near where it should be or where it could be if he were president. >> looks like unemployment's getting better. but the truth is, if the same share of people were participating in the work force today as on the day the president got elected, our unemployment rate would be around 11%. that's the real reality of what's happening out there. >> reporter: romney is basing that on the people actually in the work force. although some economists say the rate would be closer to 9% because much of the decline in the population is due to aging of the population. romney says the current employment situation shows the president's policies aren't working and that he knows how to create jobs. in an effort to sway independent and undecided voters, romney is making a direct appeal to the middle-class. >> even those that have jobs are having t

of blowing up, right as he's giving the speech. >> both good suggestions. >> i would have governor romney include in his speech a list of questions for the president, saying, asking questions that we're not getting answers to from anybody else in the administration, with respect to what happened in benghazi, what happened in libya. these are questions if he asks them directly, will force them into the mainstream media discussion and the president will have no other alternative, but to answer them. >> i think you should have won. lastly, quickly, what's the most significant moment in the presidential race so far? it should be pretty easy, i think, steve? >> i would actually say the debate. i know we're only a couple of days from it, but you had a narrative that was really running mitt romney off to the sidelines and the fact that he did as well as he did in the debate, i think, took that narrative away and made it, now, a contest at least in the minds of the media again. >> and i think it was the debate, too. but the november 9th, 2011 republican primary debate at which rick perry could no

-up speech about mitt romney learning everything he knew about russia by watching rocky 4, and his overseas trip actually being a blooper reel and all that stuff? this this great barn burner of a very funny speech by john kerry. everybody said, afterwards, where was that john kerry when he was the guy running for president in 2004? well, that john kerry actually did show up in 2004 when he was running for president. at least he showed up for the first debate against the incumbent president that year, and in that first debate against the incumbent president, challenger john kerry cleaned the president's clock. >> i made a mistake in how i talk about the war, but the president made a mistake in invading iraq. which is worse? >> president bush and senator kerry were hard at it again today, campaigning across battleground states, continuing the spirited debate they had last night on terrorism in iraq, but this time they were not on a common stage and kerry had the kind of confidence that comes with polls and pundits agreeing that he won last night's showdown. >> did you watch that debate last n
't really know how to deal with it. is the president just going to sit over there and call romney a liar? that's not necessarily helpful. so i think what's encouraging is now the president you know, today, if you listened to his speeches, he was up there fighting back and fighting back hard. i think his team understands that this is not going to a cakewalk for the next 30 plus days. >> eliot: doug, two responses to that. first, i think the president lacked the affirmative passionate aggressive articulation of what he has done to bring us back from the precipice. his failure to do that left him playing defense the entire evening and as a consequence you're exactly right. mitt romney did etch-a-sketch his way back to the middle something he had not been doing over the course of his campaign. he became the moderate which left a gaping, yawning gap between the positions he's taken and what he articulated last night. tim, let's come back to you on the issue of the $5 trillion tax cut, most of us are viewing that as basi
accountable for the real mitt romney's decisions and what he's been saying for the last year. >> mitt romney was greeted with thunderous applause this morning. at a speech to conservatives. >> last night, i thought was a great opportunity for the american people to see very different visions for the county >> the morning after, even supporters said the president seemed tentative, defensive, frequently looking down at his notes perhaps like some of his predecessors in debate, ford, carter, bush and bush. almost too accustomed to the oval office. not used to being challenged. most surprising, the president did not use some of his most potent attack lines. mitt romney's comments to we will thee contributors that 47% of the country don't pay federal income taxes or are dependent on the federal government. or romney's position on women's health issues. the president's surrogates tried to shift the subject to romney. >> romney says he's going to cut loopholes, but won't name them. romney said i'm going to place obamacare but won't say with what. >> romney clearly came to play, aggressive but polit
and bring the argument to mr. romney. >> he needs to be the old obama from that 2007 speech. >> yeah. >> put some lies out there. >> bill maher and chris rock said they want the old obama back. >> you said that earlier, i believe. the georgetown university professor, michael eric bison said that was the whole problem, that barak obama didn't want to come off as angry. and those videos and he blamed it on fox news and sean hannity for airing it, ruined the mojo for the president. >> we might have found out why president obama was having such a hard time last night. can you roll the video of the last one we have lined up? >> keeping me indoors all the time. it's a drag. [ laughter ] they're making me do my home homework. >> waaa. making me do my homework. i don't know. look, if you could go through the list of all the interviews he's done in the past 20 days and don't forget, my favorite, pimp with a limp, i mean, this is not necessarily the debate prep. i don't know what they were doing the whole time in vegas. i know they took a trip to the hoover dam. amazing bit of engineering. but they sh
are as valuable as the guy's hour and their work is as valuable, he could have given passionate speeches last night and romney would have been out of the picture for a while but he the let romney almost choreograph the evening and i think it was the strength of romney and weakness of the president to let that happen. >> rose: is this a fair observation, i came to the studio live at 11:00 o'clock having seen the debate, have you watched msnbc and i said no, i haven't and they said, chris and others seem visibly angry at what they are seeing. is that a fair characterization? >> yeah, i think. so i was told afterwards i was too angry, because i guess you get frustrated because i guess it is like, you know, it is always like watching something where you feel if i was there i could make this different, this doesn't seem to be fair the way it is going and it is a sense you just think it isn't working the way it normally should, what you knowbout the facts, every night like you do, dealing with issues like medicare and social security and with great detail and knowing what the guy on each side has
, so they'll have to revise that part of the stump speech within the romney camp. >> that's an important marker. >> you nailed it. jessica yellin, thank you. appreciate that. >>> if you want to continue to watch live, hit us up at cnn.com/live for our live events. and look at this, coming up, another great debate. the next one is convenient vice president joe biden and mitt romney's running mate paul ryan. and, of course, we have got you covered. catch all the action next thursday, thursday night here on cnn, as well as cnn.com. all the action gets under way 7:00 eastern time live. i'm barack obama, and i approve this message. these appliances could have been made here in america. but a company called global tech maximized profits by paying its workers next to nothing... under sweatshop conditions in china. when mitt romney led bain, they saw global tech as a good investment... even knowing that the firm promoted its practice of exploiting... low-wage labor to its investors. mitt romney - tough on china? since when? >>> reaction from the white house to that all important j
and described them as not elegantly stated but in an interview with fox news last night romney had a different explanation. >> clearly in a campaign with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question and answer sessions, now and then you'll say something that doesn't come out right. in this case i said something that's completely wrong. >> both candidates campaign in battleground states today. romney working to capitalize on a strong debate, the president working to regroup. susan mcginnis covering it all in washington this morning. susan, good morning to you. >> reporter: back on the campaign trail mitt romney is trying to prolong the momentum that he got from that debate, president obama is seemed determined to make up for lost ground. romney's solid debate performance gave him a new spark on the. campaign trail. before an estimated 10,000 people in virginia he kept up his attacks on the president. >> what you didn't hear last night from the president why it is the next four years will be better than the last four years. >> reporter: the obama campaign admits it needs a change in strate
or a bad job? these figures set things on a good path. it is hard to see this as bad news. >> mitt romney has based his whole campaign on the economy being weak. how does he respond? >> weekly. . we -- weakly. in every speech so far, he has said unemployment has been above 8%. that was his best line, and it was true, but now he cannot say that. what i imagine he will say is that these are not the true figures. the unemployment figure does not include those people who have given up looking for jobs, and there are millions of such people. that is true, but it is a bit of a hard sell when he has told people to pay attention to 8%. when it goes below 8%, suddenly saying that that does not matter any more. >> opinion pollsters still have not made up their mind which way to vote. is the economy going to be the most important factor? >> in that it ships how they feel about the candidate. -- in that it shapes how they feel that the candidate. likability is always a huge factor. if you look at who wins in modern presidential races, in almost every contest, the more likable candidate has won. you c

political points. but shadowing the president in virginia, mitt romney waited nine minutes deep into his scintillating stump speech before even mentioning the big news of the day, delivering it like a speech at a funeral. >> there were fewer new jobs created this month than last month, and the unemployment rate, as you know, to this year has come down very, very slowly. of course, even those that have jobs are having tough times. >> okay. but give mr. romney credit because he actually admits the unemployment rate did come down. unlike prominent conservative jack welch who tweeted this morning, unbelievable jobs numbers. these chicago guys will do anything. can't debate, so change numbers. okay. tuesday he was a ruthless race baiter. yesterday he was a feckless delivery boy. today he's don corleone, and there's more where that came from. congressman west, take it away. >> you are alleging specifically that the president is engaging in a cover-up of the data. you are saying that the administration is actively manipulating that data, correct? >> well, absolutely. >> good news is all this co

"the new york times" editorial today, they got out overnight, says the following, virtually every time mr. romney spoke, he misrepresented the platform on which he and paul ryan are actually running. that's quite a statement. and a new york magazine jonathan challenged romney over his economic plan that seems to rely on some magical numbers and thinking, quote, so romney is a candidate of a 20% cut in tax rates, a new plan to cover people with pre-existing conditions and higher defense
